The 63rd GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony took place on March 14 and were streamed live internationally via GRAMMY.com. Trevor Noah hosted the ceremony from the Los Angeles Convention Center, just across the street from the award show's usual home at the Staples Center. As with other award shows held during the pandemic, there was no live audience for the Grammys this year, save for a limited number of performers and nominees. Performers at the event included Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Beyoncé led the field with nine nominations and, after picking up the 28th Grammy win of her career, she broke the record for the most Grammy wins ever by a female artist and most Grammy wins ever by a singer. Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Swift each scored six nominations themselves, and Swift took home her third Album of the Year award. Following is the complete list of winners of the night:
